    Heya guys (and gals),

    I know that the best route to go is to use an A&K/CA/MAG box magazine, however, I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with using any other kind of mag in their SAW.
    While I could use a high cap M4/M16 mag with velcro/duct tape/painters tape to fill the gaps, that just isn't feasible for me right now. I have looked at using the Echo 1 'fatty' mag and the new Angel Custom Firestorm, I just want to hear anyone elses experiences with another mag type.

    Has anyone found a mag that is unusually fatter than the standard stanag style, magpul, pmag, C-Mag, etc. etc.?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've not had any problems using standard M4 style mags. I would think anything that fits an M4 magwell should work, but there may be some that don't, I've just never heard of any.
